It is common to have founders earn their equity over time through a vesting schedule. For example, a common vesting schedule is a four year vesting schedule with a one year cliff, where each member earns 25% of their allocated equity after one year, and the remainder in 36 monthly increments thereafter. This protects the other shareholders in case a shareholder quits the company early.
When can shareholders sell their equity interest outside the company?
In the event of a legal dispute, what legal forum would you like to use to resolve the dispute? ARBITRATION -- faster than litigation, but still expensive, and less opportunity to present evidence. Decisions are non-appealable. ANY LEGAL FORUM -- Permits traditional litigation and any other legal means of resolving disputes. Traditional litigation can take a long time before cases settle or get a judgment, but permits more opportunity for presenting evidence and appealing decisions.
